    I googled some reviews for the card but not able to see any. Just waiting if it is supported by CrazyScan and that it is not as buyyg as the TBS 6522 and it sisters. :28: :95:

  • 1.Yes,tbs6903X uses STiD135 demod.

    Do you think crazyscan correctly supports this card?
    Then explain, please, why the RF level, for example, at a frequency of 10980 H according to the results of a blind search is -32dBm, and the height of the transponder peak on the left scale is 45dBm (77dBm !!! more)

  • I'm not the right person for your question.Would it be presumptuous on my part to explain it to you,an expert in this kind of application,if crazyscan correctly support 6903X card.It's not my territory.
    But if I had to give my opinion,of course as a simple user,then,metaphorically speaking,this demod is like a Formula One engine but running at the usual speed,under its capacity.That's why it's a challenge for any developer who wants to optimize his application for this type of card.
    My regards :72:

    Silabs BLScan2 usual fast (65xx, 55xx), but sometimes buggy (hungup on low SR transponders).
    STV091x BLScan2 very fast and precise (6983, 6903/5/8, 5927), but S2X not supported.


    STiD135 is some new, FBC tuners + flexible demods + streaming engine. This very complex solution and blindscan not primary task.

    crazycat provided the Crazyscan support for the 6903X card as much as the demod allows.A solution should be found,if possible(?),for ultra fast scan for this demod.At least that's my impression since I tested this card.

    Even if I read what you said right now, I assure you that tbs6903 has the support from crazycat.Even if the comparison with previous cards is justified,6903x is missing something important and not implemented by SMT,namely,ultra-fast Blindscan.Because of this blindscan function is restricted to a simple search blindscan and search is slow.That makes BLScan2 not find transponders with weak signal on search step by step.In fact,the no-locked signal doesn't even appear in the spectrum,as it was on cards mentioned by you.
    So, crazycat did everything that depended on him to capitalize on the "steroids" of the card, but now the ball is the court of another player.At least I think so at the moment :88: Otherwise Tbs6903X does everything other professional tbs cards do :73:
    I would very much like to be wrong about some statements made above.
    Here's what the blindscan looks like with this card at 18.0W:
